Dark accessories can take a white semi-formal dress into fall

"White semi-formal dresses seem to be a staple of most women's summer wardrobes - they're fun, flirty and fresh. But just because fall is on its way, you shouldn't cease wearing your beautiful light-colored frocks.

Instead of hanging the little white numbers in the back of your closet, take a cue from some of Hollywood's elite and pair your dress with a bold, black accessory.

At the Munich premiere of her latest film, Knight and Day, Cameron Diaz sashayed down the red carpet in a white frock accented with a thick black sash. The starlet emphasized her long legs with a pair of nude-colored peep-toe pumps that made her stems appear never-ending.

Figure skater-turned-actress Julie Benz rocked a similar style to a recent affair. Benz wore an ivory gown cinched by a striking black belt. The blonde beauty completed her outfit with black platform heels.

To really accomplish the autumn transformation, however, throw on a sleek leather jacket or dark, fitted blazer before stepping out at night. Your light-colored frock will look great as the leaves begin to fall."
